Land, Lore, Legacies and Livelihoods – Further Tales of Axholme by Robert E. Fish

£9.99

Drawing on fables and yarns learned from the author’s youth to today and research of primary sources, the stories in Land, Lore, Legacies and Livelihoods weave a pathway through Axholme’s turbulent past. There are tales of war-time courage and survival; an in-depth history of The Epworth Bells and descriptions of famous and less well-known Islonians. There are accounts of events that went with a crash (and a bang); of the tribulations of staff and pupils alike in the Isle’s Victorian schools, and an acknowledgement of those who through resilience and toil bent the acres of Axholme to their will. Whether you come from a long-established Axholme family or have recently become an ‘Islonian’, this book reinforces what many know already – that the people, the landscape and its passage through time have made the Isle of Axholme one of Britain’s most unique places to live.
